DAG Rod Rosenstein Told President Trump He’s Not a Target In Muller Investigation…

Well, well, well…. details from last week’s trip by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to the White House are now surfacing in multiple news reports.  Mark the date today, the media is exiting the ‘muh Russia’ narrative.

Deep-weeds-walkers, those who follow nuance carefully, will note that yesterday Jennifer Jacobs was given a question by POTUS Trump during the joint press conference with PM Shinzo Abe.  Jacobs asked President Trump if he would still consider firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  Not coincidentally, today Jennifer Jacobs reports that DAG Rosenstein informed the President he is not a target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The media walk-back begins…. left-wing partisans going bananas. Multiple simultaneous splodey heads happening:

(Bloomberg)  Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Donald Trump last week that he isn’t a target of any part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Rosenstein, who brought up the Mueller probe himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House last Thursday, a development that helped tamp down the president’s desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller, the people said.

After the meeting, Trump told some of his closest advisers that it’s not the right time to remove either man since he’s not a target of the probe. One person said Trump doesn’t want to take any action that would drag out the investigation. (read more)

      Rudy and the President. Two big time New York dealers. This will be fun to watch.

      You know that P45 wants to see Comey/McCabe go down for kicks and giggles for sure. Probably Lynch about the Tarmac. And while I would love to see Clinton and Obama go down the deal might have to be that they completely STFU and go away. She’ll die in the next 1 /2 dozen years and he’ll go play at some island paradise with his buddies.

      The rest will be collateral damage.

        No deals. The Pres needs to pour it on. This is the worst political scandal in our lifetimes, possibly in the history of the country. Punishment is warranted. Maybe, just maybe, it will send a message that there will be EQUAL justice under the law.

        I don’t care about Lefty threats that there will be riots etc etc. When I hear those threats it only hardens my position and my feelings about the other side. Prosecuting heavy breathers in the previous admin for in your face wrong doing is not banana republic behavior. Threatening riots and street violence when the criminals at the top of your party are correctly prosecuted for MAJOR criminal behavior is what banana republics do.

Civil disobedience and violence will still occur but it will be dealt with swiftly, according to a well thought out plan. We are in a war against pure, entrenched evil.

          America’s barely thwarted Coup d’État stands as the biggest most vile, outrageous and corrupt crime ever committed. Against us all, against the Heritage and Blessings of our Founders. A betrayal of every soul that ever fought and died for us, of those that suffer and strive against mighty odds and savage enemies on our behalf.

          This can not go unanswered.

          Club Fed, Lifers At Gitmo Edition, is as easy a penalty that I can ever accept, and much worse is warranted.

          If The Rule Of Law is to be restored, it must be applied. Especially when the crimes are so manifest, so destructive, so seemingly endless in number and bottomless in depravity. When the victims if these crimes, those that survived their reign of terror, consist of an entire Nation, and many Nations beside?

          How many of the millions of lives lost to their supposed “Foreign Policy” was to enrich, gain power, destroy personal enemies, to destroy Civilizations, to empower Islam and its Bloody Twin, Socialism? How many millions more will lose their lives in consequence?

          We don’t prosecute our political enemies? Punish the last Administration? WTF are we, the Deplorables, then enduring, if not an endless prosecution with premeditated “judgment” of all we hold dear?

          Hillary sold us out via top secret national security on her server that included SAP. How did she get that? She had no clearance and yet somehow it is there as well as Huma sending it to her laptop and Weiner.
          Interestingly enough – Weiner AND Huma collected every piece of email, pics and videos and other correspondence regarding HRC et in their own “insurance folder”.

          The sexting of Weiner enable the NYPD and local FBI office there accessing all these files long before Strzok and McCabe got their hands on it. Copies were made before turning it over to these two deep state actors and swamp creatures.

          Yes – NO Deals!

        Yep, the swamp is very deep. Mueller is a fixer. The depth of ‘why they do’ is nothing to do with justice for USA, its micro-focused on protecting arses in Washington by any means. That is all… nothing else and I include Rosenstein in that group myself, and I personally believe Sessions is no different. There are small differences – where they might use a blue tie, a purple or red, but basically, the entire game is like the game Monopoly. He who stays out of jail and accumulates the most assets wins. Simple isn’t it? Occasionally they draw a card (an opportunity chest) and it gives them a chance to zip around the board and collects extra cash (lobbyists and rewards for pushing big corp agenda’s through). Trump is quite different to this for many reasons, but he has now surrounded himself with all he had to choose from apparently – swamp neocons, and they are gleefully going to destroy his image as they have begun to do. Trump has few options and very few he can trust. His heart is good, but he now being pushed. General Mattis one of the few truly on his side. If Mattis goes, he is dead in the water.

        So now we are to believe it was Cohen all the time? is he involved in Russia, or has that changed, too? And RR, in opposition to Comey, will not tell the prez this in private and then, before congress say “I cannot comment on that”?

        nobody pays….nobody leaves the swamp who hasn’t already,..nobody’s indicted except perhaps an attorney who has worked for half of DC…suddenly, that is a good use of taxpayer’s paying hefty salaries for the past year — and the fact that we’ve been accused of supporting a traitor and Russian spy -yes, at one point, they said that — is fine, and we’ll all be united again?

  5. Been a fan but have not commented. I have been of the opinion that Mueller is not an SC, but an arbitrator between Trump, Obama, and HRC. He is trying to come up with a settlement for each group, while protecting the IC and other areas of government. He knows that Trump was setup, he knows who did it. But he realizes that some information can never come up. You have all 3 parties pushing back at each other and Mueller is looking to settle it. But we are at the end game. Think about the moves and counter moves that he is engineering. Trump wants HRC and Obama on a spit. Its not going to happen so Mueller pushes back on Trump with leaks and raids. Here is a little mike cohen and stormy daniels for you POTUS45! HRC thinks she is getting off scott-free, so here is a little andy mcabe and a tarmac tape for you Cankles! Obama thinks he is getting off scot free- here is a little coordination and document and we have loretta lynch nailed to the wall Barry! Mueller is leveraging and threatening all 3 sides to settle this. So how does this game of high stakes poker end after Mueller deals his cards?
    Trump- He gets a clean bill of health. No collusion, no obstruction. But he does not get HRC and Barry for his mar-a-lago trophy case. He’ll get a few pounds of flesh. Strok, page, ohr, baker, and mccabe. Maybe comey on minor infractions. And he will throw in Samantha Powers. Possibly Rice and Lynch on some minor issues. The public will know that Trump was set up, but not how high it went.
    Barry- He gets off. He can claim the people below him assured him the dossier was real. He can claim the HRC and DNC pulled a fast one on him too. They misled him into believing the dossier was real. He can throw comey, rice, and lynch under the bus. comey, rice, and lynch will play ball if they dont get hard time. They do martha stewart time for their crimes. He retires from the political arena and focuses on making money.
    HRC- The Crowley witch will escape yet again. Bill gets a pass on the Lolita Express and we bury the whole sex magic ritual stuff. But it will be made clear that she never runs for office again and retires from public life permanantly. In return mccabe, fusion GPS, blumenthal, winer and a few other players take a hit. Martha Stewart time for them as well.
    Mueller makes it clear that he has enough dirt on everyone to make their lives very unhappy. So everyone need to settle it and walk away. Years later Sundance writes a best seller (made into a movie) that details the depth of the conspiracy. History is not kind to Obama and HRC.

      I like how you are thinking out of the box and moving the premise. Washington is a pit of snakes, and they are all in on it – no matter what side, colour or underpants. Everyone has something to win or lose, most (Congress) apart from a very few – are just paid for MIC or some other big industrie flunkies (McCain the peak of prostitution). The big players from Obama down (and we can go back to previous administrations) have all cut big self-serving deals in their ‘service’ that have nothing to do with serving the country. However, this ‘game’ greases all palms so it would make sense to send in a big fixer (not for the justice of the people mind you) but to cover butts as gently as possible.

      You may well be closer to the core of this than anything. Putting your base idea in – then running the game again (all the games so far), it could hold up as a theory. Thank’s for the good thinking.

      I suggested something like this a long time ago. No one in Washington wants to open the Clinton can of worms. It’s too big, and there are just too many worms. Heck, even a very prominent constitutional attorney featured regularly on Fox News was rumored on Zerohedge to be part of Epstein’s group – I always wondered why he was fighting so hard to shut all the investigations down. I’ve always thought (and said) that Mueller was desperately looking for chips to play in the big poker game.

      “Trump wants HRC and Obama on a spit.”
      Not so, IMHO. I remember Donald Trump saying that he did not want to pursue Hillary. I don’t think he wanted to pursue Obama either. All he wanted was to be the best president he could possibly be. He did not want to spend his time (and capital) chasing those two. He realized that they weren’t worth it, and he also realized that it would consume his presidency. Remember Jeff Sessions commenting on how it would be bad to investigate previous presidents?

      Trump doesn’t *want* them “for his mar-a-lago trophy case.” He just wants to do for the country what he does best.

      IMHO, the irony of all this is that it didn’t have to happen at all. It seems that, as SD has pointed out so well, the “small group” put things in motion that, once started, mushroomed into threatening both Hillary and Obama.

        Old Bill and Hillary left the White House with less than they hoped they would but a decade later they’re rolling in cash. They’ve left a decades-old trail of dead bodies behind them, numerous questions of financial improprieties and drugs follow them like toilet paper stuck to their heels yet nothing touches them, they slide between the problems like they’re greased.
        Our national kleptocracy is wide and deep and I believe it’s anchored in Federal agencies that groom and recruit to meet their needs. Pols are brought in, elected a rediculous expense, all promising to change the system and reform the bureaucracy but…here we still are. These agencies control billions in working capital and immense amounts of power and no one they annointed is going to turn on the either out of a sense of gratitude or fearand as long as these annointees keep playing along their fortunes will grow.

    A circle of intrigue….

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a longtime ally of President Donald Trump, is expected to join the president’s private legal team

    Current SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman worked for Greenberg Traurig, Giuliani’s law firm.

    Berman has recused himself from the Cohen matter for unspecified reasons, leaving it in the hands of deputy Robert Khuzami.

    In June, 2017, Giuliani joined the Reza Zarrab, a Turkish tycoon accused of busting Iran sanctions

    “The focus of the case against Turkish gold trader Reza Zarrab veered from the accused money launderer to his attorneys in March, amid revelations that he retained Giuliani and Michael Mukasey, a former U.S. attorney general under President George W. Bush.”

    “Bringing more than legal advice to the defense table, however, the powerful Republicans met in late February with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to come up with what they called a “diplomatic solution” to Zarrab’s case”.

    “With Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions briefed about it in advance, the visit cast a spotlight on Giuliani and Mukasey’s law firms, as well as evolving foreign relations between Washington and Ankara”

    https://www.courthousenews.com/giuliani-kept-retainer-accused-iran-sanctions-buster/

    The Russia investigation has a Turkish connection via Michael Flynn, who was accused of failing to disclose he was a foreign agent for its government.

    https://www.courthousenews.com/michael-flynn-expected-to-plead-guilty-to-misleading-fbi/

    In 2014, Giuliani’s firm Greenberg Traurig registered as a foreign agent for the Turkish government, evidence from the Zarrab case showed.

      He’s not supporting the bill, he’s the chairman of a committee and apparently the people on the committee want to hold a vote so Grassley is letting them do it. Grassley knows it’s not going anywhere, he doesn’t have to stop the idiots from their exercise in futility.

      I like Feinstein’s comments on delaying the bill becsause “I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what it does…So you would want us to know what we’re voting on, right?” Uhhh…to borrow a concept from one of your hangers-on, just vote on it, you can see what’s in it after it’s passed.
      Then again, McConnel’s said it’s probably unconstitutional so why not pass it and look all nonpartisan – hands across the isle and all that – by passing a feel-good bill you knowv will be challenged and shot down by the courts?

    Does Cohen dropping his lawsuits against Fusion GPS and Buzzfeed not cause problems with publicly proving how the info about the wrong Michael Cohen going to Prague made it into the Steele dossier? If I recall correctly, didn’t Sundance say that the lawsuits would force Fusion GPS to reveal their source for this mistaken info and therefore force them to reveal a bunch of fowl play? When I saw he had dropped the lawsuits, all I could think was “nothing good can come of this”.

    I’m hoping the OIG report will have this so nailed down that Cohen dropping the lawsuits won’t matter.

    #BreakingNews: Rosenstein told Trump he is not target of Cohen probe, source says. https://t.co/HkW2CZIKtN pic.twitter.com/K9FoGiTMue
    — FOX Business (@FoxBusiness) April 19, 2018

    Fine, but that is not the same as saying the President is not the target of the Mueller probe into the Russia collusion charade.

    Moreover, even though the following has also been quoted:

    BREAKING: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein told Trump last week that he isn’t a target of any part of Mueller’s investigation – Bloomberg
    — Breaking911 (@Breaking911) April 19, 2018

    no one should lose sight of the enormous investment Mueller and the deep state have in his charging the President with SOMETHING. The President was the target of the FBI, DOJ, and Mueller from the beginning. The resistance is depending upon, and very likely demanding, that Mueller give them a catalyst for both deflecting the IG report and initiating impeachment proceedings in case the Dems win the House.

    It’s presumptuous and, IMO, approaching foolish to believe the prolonged, aggressive, frontal attack on the President will produce no overtly damaging accusation from Mueller, even though it would be a complete falsehood. Both of the “Breaking” items cite RR as the source. Nothing RR says can be trusted. Nothing.

    It’s too soon to line-up in the victory formation.

    I have yet to see an authoritative commentary on how to effectively terminate the Mueller charade. Sessions won’t end it; RR won’t end it; the President won’t fire him; Congress is protecting him; now, are we to hope that Rudy G. will exercise some compelling pretzel logic to convince Mueller to end it? Or, is that just the next act in this three-ring ****-show?

    The entire process with Sessions and Mueller began as a national embarrassment, and Mueller’s reign seemingly has no end unless and until he calls the final shot with an absurd, criminal charge against the President. Embarrassment unchecked eventually becomes humiliation, and the entire nation suffers the shame.

    Isn’t the Cohen raid to pressure the president to make a deal? Decide who walks and who the fall guys are? Aren’t they threatening to destroy Trump and his family by going after his businesses? The desperation seems obvious now – banging on the doors of Obama and Hillary and who knows who else. Can the Democrats survive Obama and Hillary being indicted? Does Trump really want to spend the remainder of his presidency fighting this battle?? And, risk destruction – but not by Mueller?

    Again, just think about the can of worms I’ve been talking about for a long time. How big is that can? How smelly are all those worms? How many really powerful people are threatened?

    Whether or not justice is really done is immaterial when it comes to how things will unfold. Unfortunately.

    And, here comes Rudy! Everyone realizes that it is time to make a deal, and what a negotiation it must be. Who better than a New Yorker named Rudy to get this deal done? Does anyone else know better than he does where ALL the bodies are buried?

That one client is Donald Trump. Rosenstein authorized a raid of all the files of the President’s attorney. This is probably the worst abuse of power I ever heard of.

And to NOT join the side taking-down the elite political forces, confirms their penchant for corruption and should lay apparent for their masses, that they are against the average-joe, and for the elite. They’re missing a golden opportunity here for the revival of their party, as the party for the down-trodden and unrepresented, victimized and oppressed.

    A couple of weeks ago signals began to develop from those who might speak for the other side that it would be better to forgive and forget this whole thing. Subsequent to that we have Comey’s disastrous book tour, the emergent legal difficulties faced by half a dozen of the conspirators, and the prospect of favourable negotiations with North Korea. Notable in recent moves has been the exquisite timing of McCabe’s dismissal, the live announcement-during-show of recommended charges against Comey, and with all these major shifts in the battle’s momentum the media drones on with its familiar absurd hostility. This last element of the fight has to be won. The Trump team has a plan beyond this, and the team is recently strengthened. The personal nature of the smears on the President won’t be readily forgiven at these early shifts in momentum. The enemy may relent, they may parlay, but they are done for. In addition, the longstanding erosion of Obama’s “legacy” since the beginning of the Trump presidency clearly indicates that Obama is not going to be allowed to escape without considerable pain. If Obama can be nailed and exposed, he will be. If he jumps into the community organiser role and threatens riots he will be faced down, HRC’s only way out is to become very sick indeed. That is the best case she can build.
